Wilayat e Takwini

Q:

does wilayat e takwini believe intercept the denial of ghulu and tafweedh/tafweez defined by Imam Ali naqi pbuh/as in his era?

A:
Salaamun alaykum
 
Thank you for your question. The Ghullat and the Mufawida believe that the Infallibles (as) are able to act in creation without the permission of Allah. Walayah takwiniyyah is that the Infallibles (as) have been given the authority to act in creation by Allah and act by His permission. So they are not the same. Whilst many mainstream Shia scholars accept Walayah takwiniyyah, none of them accept ghuluw or tafwid with the meanings found in the scriptural sources.
 
May you always be successful
